Description :

Karl-Kantner-Steig is short and easy via ferrata (A/B). After we reach Karl-Ludwigshaus, we continue to the highest point of Rax - Heukuppe (2007 m). Upon return, the plan is to cross southern wall of the Predigtstuhl via  Bismarcksteig (B)  and subsequently descent on the easy Waxriegelsteig back to Preiner Gscheid.

Lunch break can be made at the Waxriegelhaus, on the return back.

Sure-footedness and via ferrata experience is required! The event will take place only the weather is nice and there is no snow on the route, which cannot be guaranteed in November.  Otherwise, the event will be canceled or postponed, or alternatively we could do some ferratas on Hohe Wand instead, if the conditions are better there.
